Palestine builds no productive economy because the destructive economy of terrorism suits the aims and the bank accounts of the terrorists leading the society. Terrorists don’t have the interest or expertise to build a healthy society, particularly within the context of Islam which is a religion of war and conquest.

The Palestinians are “trapped” in Gaza. Really? So explain to me how Hamastrained for the mission in Lebanon. Explain how the Hamas leaders are in Qatar, but their families are in Gaza. They never see their families? Sure.

Do you think Egypt or the Gulf States or the Saudis for that matter want Hamas and Hezbollah to win? They may hate the Jews, they know the Jews are not interested in destroying their countries and reigning over the Middle East. Can’t say the same for Iran, the power behind the terrorist Palestinians. They won’t say it out loud because they are afraid of the Muslim Brotherhood in their own lands. The Arabs aren’t stupid. They know that the world will blow them off its face before allowing Islam to rule. They know that to integrate into the world economy and modernize their nations they must moderate. But they are cowards. They won’t do what Mustafa Kemal Ataturk did for Turkey in the twentieth century and wipe out the retrograde fanatics holding their countries back.

Then we have the Western Libtards and academic Commies. They never met a homicidal maniac they didn’t love- Castro, Che, Lenin, Mao, Chavez, the Palestinians. They have to invent far right bogeymen now -Trump, Netanyahu, January 6 trespassers , normal people who work for a living and love their kids.

These idiots appease the killers and pressure those of us with functioning brains not to eliminate evil. It just makes it worse. Every single time. There is no appeasement strategy that works long term. Ever. Anywhere. Only brute force or the threat of annihilation stops a savage. It’s not debatable.

Israel - everybody has an opinion. Either fight on the side of what is right, or get out of the way and let them do what needs to be done. Many think this conflict spirals out of control and becomes Armageddon. You either fight evil or surrender to it. There’s no other option. Appeasing Iran, which means appeasing China and Russia and North Korea - what has it gotten us. Well it got us this war with more to come.

All the diplomats in the world can’t make this Humpty Dumpty right. Yes, we are tired of globalism and tired of war and debt and death. But your opponents do not care. They are not tired. They are energized. Cowering in the corner ain’t gonna make it go away. Just hard facts.

“Terrorism is by definition a cut-throat enterprise.”

And there’s your money shot.

Close second: “Hamas is a bogeyman meant to take the blame for Palestinians, as if there were a difference.”

OOPH!!

“The press decries Israel withholding water and other supplies to pressure Palestinians to release those $10,000 hostages but fail to criticize Palestinians for taking hostages.”

Actually, Israel supplies only a small fraction of Gaza’s electrical, water and fuel requirements. No one is dying from shortages. Israel just decided not to subsidize their neighborly murderers anymore.

“And why do the Palestinians still rely on Israel for the basics after nearly 20 years of independence and billions of dollars in aid?”

First, always ALWAYS follow the money! Besides the multi-level corruption, Gazans have refused or destroyed everything provided to them. In 2005, upon Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza, the so-called Palestinians immediately rampaged through the beautiful greenhouses left to them and destroyed everything. No, there’s no mystery why Gazans can’t grow anything.

“For real journalism, always turn to actor James Woods.”

I like Woods and have followed him for some time but, if I want a news aggregator with their finger on the pulse and a clever wit, my first stop is here. 😉

Thank you for a wonderful article. When Palestinians value their people’s lives more than destroying other people’s lives then there can be moral relativism. Maybe at that point they may contribute to society in a positive way. Jews

Make up 1/100 of the world population but account for 30% of Nobel Laureates ( if you take out fake peace prize). Arabs account for 30% of world population and have provided the world only a few Nobel laureates.

Mark Twain said, "If you don't read the news (paper) you are uninformed, if you do read the news (paper)) you are misinformed." Images have become idols. If people see, hear, and read these fake journalists, they believe them. As in Biblical times, time to destroy these idols. Good going, Don!!

Based on my survey response, I am in the minority here. Again, I agree with every word written, but this is a bit like that other Don— Don Quixote, you are titling at windmills here. The NYT has always been the poster child for yellow journalism, they just use a lot of 50 cent words. This narrative was about as predictable as the rising & setting sun. There is no way Israel is going to win the PR battle no matter how justified they are, the deck is stacked against them. I go back to Trump’s snake tale, the problem is not that the snake does what the snake does, the problem is the guy who expects his actions will change the inevitable. Israel needs to decide which battle it wants to fight. They can only win one.

If/when there is a shutdown, you don't even have to imagine all the ways the media will blame the Caucus of Chaos. All the responsibility will be on the Republicans. So be it. Just think of a shutdown as a laxative. If we listen very closely, we may even hear a faint voice saying. 'God Almighty, we're free at last of the CR'.

The Palestinians have no water because Hamas has dug up the pipes to use in making weapons.

With the damage to society and in some cases actual harm to the health and safety of people everywhere, this brand of journalism could be improved by lowering their numbers.

Very good article once again on the state of political journalism. But how many of us are reading the article and saying to themselves, “I already know the media is full of dirtbag leftists”? Why do we conservatives spend so much time talking about the problem with no apparent way to fix it? It’s not like we are changing peoples minds by doing so. It’s really defeating after a while when all we seem able to do is talk about problems instead of solving them. So let’s look at possible things that can help fix those problems. The lefts media believes in the theory that if you tell lies or twist the facts long enough they take life and become a sort and of pseudo or sick truth when directed at the ignorant reader. Many people believe it must be true if the NYT publishes it. They wouldn’t lie, right? So here is a way to make the big media rethink the consequences of their actions which right now are nil. Get some wealthy people like, say, Elon Musk, who believe in responsible journalism to erect giant electronic reader boards in full view of corrupt media headquarters buildings and each day post the latest untruths or blatant lies along with the actual truth with it. These boards need to be big, easily viewed by the public, and visible to the target media company. Make them look at the truth every single day along with their lies and distortions. Tell me that would not have a profound affect on the rank and file “journalist” working there. There are lots of wealthy conservatives who just itch at the idea of sticking the WaPo’s or NYT nose in the mud if they could. Count a middle class guy like me in, I’ll contribute to the cause. We have to stop accepting these problems as unsolvable and start looking at ways to beat the commie left at their own game......public opinion.

Quit the pretending that news organizations investigate and report the truth. Based on my many years of reading and listening to the "professional journalists", they teach us that they are nothing more than "news script readers".

This is nothing more than educated idiocy on display.

Believe your "lyin' eyes".

Jews are despised and being eliminated today. Where and when have we witnessed this before?

If our culture/society in the current century no longer values life, what should we expect?

https://www.thefp.com/p/the-day-the-delusions-died by Bari Weiss and Oliver Wiseman. Despite the overt support for Hamas and Palestinians (it's co-ordinated and not organic according to what I've read), things are starting to shift. Wiess' The Free Press is an excellent source of information.

Obviously, Sir's cat was asleep late this morning, but Sir did make another astute comment "Terrorism is by definition a cut-throat enterprise."

I can only conclude that our Lamestream Media are minions of Satan, motivated by evil.

Perhaps we should start a GiveSendGo fundraiser to enable Israel to level The NY Times. To be fair, they should also target CNNLOL, MSDNC, and ABCCBSNBC just to make sure. All these propaganda outlets are the worst enemies of We, The People after all.
